The Jacksonville Jaguars entered this offseason with just over $59 million in cap space, second in the NFL. The team made its first big move in free agency Saturday, reaching an agreement with defensive end Red Bryant for a 4-year deal, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Bryant was a starting defensive end for the Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks, where he played in former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's scheme. Bryant will reunite with Bradley, now the head coach in Jacksonville.
Bryant has spent all six of his years in the NFL in Seattle, the last three as a full-time starter. In 2013, he recorded 17 tackles and 1.5 sacks.
